for sometime i think. as far as the 49er locker room is concerned the stands colin kaepernick made before friday's game with the packers is old news. it was yesterday that kaepernick met with reporters for some 18 minutes and elaborated on his position. coach chip kelley has stated his political positions have nothing to do with whether or not he'll get playing time. blaine gabbard had locked down the starting quarterback job before publicity about kaepernick erupted. he doesn't think any of this will affect team unity. >> we always respect each others as human beings. yeah we all have different opinions on certain subjects, but football brings everybody together. socio economic backgrounds different ways you were raised, but the great thing about this sport is we're here for a common goal working together for that. >> it's on the national level that reaction to kaepernick has dramatically heated up today.

6:55 pm
because that's what those men and women fought for and sacrificed for we should be grateful for that. >> there is the time of year when it's also about making the roster in nfl camps former 49er will not be a member of the cleveland browns this year andy lee had just puned to tampa adam humphreys about to turn this into a 73-yard return for a touchdowns. this isn't exactly what you call sticking your heads in there make a tackling. lee found himself traded to carolina. held coach hue jackson is trying to change the culture in cleveland and that apparently means puntsers doing more than going through the motions in ex- licks games. olympic heros have a way of ending up on the whities box no surprise that michael phelps is the latest athlete to be featured. phelps just concluded his haul in rio that gives him a records 28 overall olympic pled always and 23 gold. lion lochte not expected to be so long order anytime soon.
